SSIC Making Music

It is Sunday and that means it is time for the Stampin' Sisters in Christ Challenge.  this week our hostess is MariLynn who has chosen the following scripture:

Speaking to one another with psalms, hymns, and songs from the Spirit. Sing and make music from your heart to the Lord, always giving thanks to God the Father for everything, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. - Ephesians 5:19-20

MariLynn has challenged is to create a project that shows some element of music.  I have used a Music Sheet from an old Hymnal that was given to me as it was falling apart - perfect for card making.

I have used the Spellbinders Paper Arts Lacey Circles Nestabilities and Grommet Tags Shapeabilities, both Dies have been cut with the Grand Calibur.
I have also added some vintage lace, Want2Scrap bling and a hand crotchet rose by my dear friend Maxine.  The paper is KaiserCraft and the sentiment is from the Penny Black Social Butterfly stamp set, illustrated by my dear friend Laura Kirste Campbell.
This card is for the following challenges:
